– So, have you found a job?


– No, not yet.


– It’s true that it’s not easy right now with the economic crisis


– Yes, well, we shouldn’t complain too much. It’s even worse in other places.


– Yes, but even still in my day everybodt worked. What kind of work are you looking for?


– Construction work. I’ve been doing construction painting for the past five years, so if you know anyone who’s looking for a good painter let me know.


– Mr Bouc told me, and rightly so, that the youth are unemployed but that they don’t want to work. He’s looking for someone right now, but not a painter. You’ll have to go see him if you’re interested.


– Of course I’m interested! Where can I find him?


– He’s at the construction site, go directly there to see him. He takes his break between noon and two.


– At the construction site near the station?


– Yes, yes! But keep it to yourself; he’s a difficult character…, Mr Bouc..


– Don’t worry about it, I’m used to it. In any case, thanks for the info. If this works out, I’m taking you out to the restaurant!


– Come on ! This is going to be the talk of the neighborhood


– Good day !


– Good day !
